11:00pm
that knock down dragout fight started as comedy but quickly it turned very very real. mascots getting violent. the ram and the panther pulling each other to the ground and throwing punches. the halftime brawl didn't end until others stepped in to pull the mascots apart, but don't worry. the ram and the panther were not hurt. that's the last call. thanks for being with us tonight. see you tomorrow night. go to gretawire.com. there's an open thread. tell us what you thought about tonight's show. gretawear.com. goodnight from washington. >> eric: this is a fox news alert. we have breaking news on two big stories at this hour. you are looking live at the white house where president obama and house speaker john boehner are about to meet to discuss the looming fiscal cliff. this is a surprise meeting, one that we learned about a short time ago. boehner is making his way over there right now.
11:01pm
the other breaking news is that u.n. ambassador susan rice just removed her name from consideration for the coveted secretary of state job, following the theory over her response to the attack on the consulate in benghazi. ed henry has more on both breaking stories. take it away. >> reporter: you are right. speaker boehner left the capital and expected to arrive at the white house in a moment. this could not put more explanation point how critical this meeting is. we are running up against the fiscal cliff. we heard from firms that unless a framework for a deal is forged in the next few days they are going to run out of time in order actually move whatever deal they come up with through both changes to the house and the senate. this is why i got new information that last night senate majority leader harry reid met in a private dinner and he was saying he believes it's nearly impossible to get the fiscal cliff deal done before christmas.
11:02pm
what they are focused on is a so-called plan "b" where the house in the next few days may pass extension of the middle class tax cuts. the old bush tax cuts. then let the tax rates for the rich go up and fight it out in january and february over spending cuts. we'll see whether or not conservative goes along with that, if speaker boehner was party to that. the second big story is susan rice. in the last couple of hours calling the president and saying she is pulling her name out of consideration for secretary of state, all because of the controversy over benghazi, her reaction to the terror attack, whether or not she misled the public. bottom line this puts john kerry, democratic sources say, as the likely contender to be secretary of state i'm seeing the suvs pull up with speaker boehner right now. both the stories breaking right as we speak. you will see speaker boehner in a moment. but bottom line is you will remember at the post election news conference, the president made a big deal about standing up for susan rice. saying that basically, she
11:03pm
was -- [ inaudible ] not going to stand for attacks threatened filibuster. this is a cave-in by the president. he gave in to the critics on the hill. susan rice may not be disappearing. it posted a story saying the top democrats say she may be the next national security advisor here inside the white house. significant that the president appoints her to that, doesn't need senate confirmation, so republicans can't phil buster. the final point i'll make is democrats are telling us that chuck hagel the former republican senator is now the leading contender to be the next defense secretary. the rice move possible kerry elevation to secretary of state is part of a broader look at refurbishment. expecting a new national security team for president to announce as early as next week. >> eric: thank you, ed henry. if you hear anything else, get back to us and we'll go back to you. >> thank you. >> eric: you hear this, and i heard you humming, which
11:04pm
part? what was concerning to you? >> dana: the piece about the fiscal cliff first. you think they have had a year to work on that the democrats and republicans could come together. i think what harry reid heard last night from the democrats is we are not going to do anything. this is reported in the national journal today. not going to do anything to make any change or sacrifice benefit for social security, medicare or medicaid. that would be a condition of speaker boehner, which is if we give you the revenue you have to help us on the spending side, on the entitlement issue. reid said i can't get democrats to support that. so now boehner is going up to say all right, where are we? maybe they'll get to something. if they push this on the next year, i think it's a good thing because, in some ways, because you a new congress and new members. maybe because they are going out to live under the decision that would be made this month, maybe it's okay to have them be able to weigh in on it. >> eric: hang on to the
11:05pm
ambassador rice comment commenta minute. bob, you were fist-pumping while hearing henry say there is a meeting and they may kick part of it down the road. >> eric: what is happening here -- north dakota is getting to point you can't write legislation, not enough time to write legislation revamping social security and medicare. they can pass the tax cuts. leave the top 2%, $250,000 their taxes will go up. they have to have language there to deal with the republican concern about entitlement. i think it will be along the lines of sequestration. if you don't have an agreement on social security, medicare or medicaid, social security or medicare at a certain point, date certain there will be automatic cuts in programs. >> andrea: they will take away the defense cuts and push -- >> dana: they will push off the defense cuts. push them off. >> andrea: how howardly is that? i think a lot of members secretly wanted the cuts to
11:06pm
take place so they don't take a stand and they don't have to vote either for higher taxes or on entitlements. today is -- bob is right. today is the last day that they need to come up with a deal because there is a time crunch on the legislation. getting it through. but i think it's disingenuous for jay carney to come out and say today, republicans haven't moved at all. republicans have moved. they have come to the table with revenue raisers. it's the democrats that haven't moved at all. i do think that after the first of the year, it's not good to have the fight. the reason for that is they are just fighting over the tax cuts for the rich, that is a p.r. battle that the president wants, because he knows he will win. >> greg: this was supposed to be about spending, and taxes. now it's just about taxes. it's like ignoring cancer and treating a cold sore. it's always going to be about spending. the worst thing, president obama never has to explain, ever, why raising taxes on the 2% would help.
11:07pm
or hurt the economy. most people believe that it will hurt the economy. he gets more free rides than a hot hitchhiker. at some point, we have to question president obama's obsession with a certain segment of the population. if the rich were justin bieber, obama would be arrested for stalking. >> eric: that is another great line. >> bob: one thing he has going for him is the polls that are out, two things in the polls that just came out from pew and abc, "washington post," people do want spending cuts. they think it's very important. but they overwhelmingly favor increase in taxes. >> if you don't offer the alternative, you know, closing the loopholes and finding, you know, getting rid of the brackets, nobody ever puts that in a poll. when they do put in a poll that people shy away from increasing taxes. >> eric: we have a couple of polls. pull up the first one. how the budget control, how the budget should be fixed. 49% say lawmakers will reach an agreement.
11:08pm
34% said push them over the fiscal cliff. we don't know what will happen in this hour, in this meeting so we could still go over the fiscal cliff. the second poll, the best way or fix this budget problem, 57%. mostly spending cuts. raise my taxes. >> dana: this is the problem that the democrats are starting to realize, they let this go on too long. you never under estimate the obama administration tendency to overplay their hand. yes, they had a good hand, but they do too much. then the public catches up with what is going on here. they say wait a second, for spending cuts and the new stories are starting to change. that the democrats say they are not for that. >> bob: the people blame republicans if it doesn't work. they blame obama. if you brought up a number should rich people get tax increases overwhelmingly they yes. >> eric: let's talk about what is going on. president obama came out and said i want 1.6 trillion in new revenues.
11:09pm
john boehner says we will give you $800 example in new revenue. obama came down to $1.4 trillion. boehner hasn't come back yet. if boehner offers $1 trillion new revenues can it pass the house? >> andrea: great question. we are sitting around the table sitting about deal that boehner brokers. he has to go back to the members to get the deal through the house. i'm not so sure about it. i know what he won't get through the house, raising taxes. he is not going to get some tax raising compromise together. there is no house member when they know they have to run for re-election every two years, that is going to vote for a tax increase. how would they get through a primary? >> bob: they will vote on cutting taxes on everybody but the 2%. that is politically sellable. >> dana: no. extending the bush tax cuts for everybody. it's not obama's tax cuts.
11:10pm
>> bob: you extend it for everybody except for that group of people. >> eric: if they are not -- let me ask you. >> dana: i see. >> eric: will they get -- >> dana: i see what he is saying. it's like when you reduce the rate of growth, you get credit for saying that you cut spending. it's a game. it's a word game. >> bob: keep in mind, whatever legislation happens can be retroactively made to january 1. when you get to june working on this, you still have the debt ceiling issue here. she is right tough to get through the house. boehner for the first time, unlike last time, he has the lieutenants with him. canada with him, two or three others in leadership with him on this. so if he has that, he can put together majority. >> eric: can you imagine what is going on behind the door now? john boehner has to figure out how he is going to offer increase revenue, probably offer tax increases and figure out how to sell it to the group. >> greg: i go back to the
11:11pm
maxim about obese people. they are not fat because they don't have enough fat. they're fat because they eat too much. that's the government. the problem isn't they need more money. they can't stop spending. every time you raise taxes it's injecting a fat person with twinkies. >> eric: we have to go. what is the significance of boehner was supposed to leave either tonight or tomorrow morning to go back to ohio. and this meeting happens. >> dana: they all want a weekend. the members want to go back home and touch base with the constituents so obama and boehner who are acting like the adults here decided to have a meeting. and temporary measures are very bad for the economy. so setting aside what is good for republicans or democrats if they kick this to january or february and we talk about it then, maybe it helps the markets get through the fiscal cliff area. but still a tetch rare measure that doesn't involve -- >> greg: can we call it something else? fiscal cliff? can't we call it something else? >> dana: sure. >> eric: monetary -- >> greg: liberal fantasy. >> bob: one more thing on
11:12pm
the table. can obama sell cuts in entitlements to his senate? >> dana: not acarding to harry reid. >> eric: leave it there. we'll stay on it. don't go away. more on developing news washington, including ambassador susan rice. we'll get on that when we come back. ♪ ♪

11:17pm
americans in benghazi. forget the other liberal lies that paul ryan pushes grannies off the cliff, remember that? or mitt murdered a guy's wife. that was fun. media is a sad middle age man at strip club overcome by obama lust diminished by stupidity. the emperor has no close clothes. all they can do is keep whistling. why every news outlet ran with the fake award. the blog claims the public expressed collective outrage and they must mean male bloggers with ponytails. saying this is the real lie but it's worse than a lie. abetting the obama coverup, the media is an accessory after the fact. we still don't know where this video idea came from, i will never stop. don't you think that is worse than a crack about jeeps shipped to china? the politifact lie of year award should go to politifact.
11:18pm
congrats. covering up "o"'s mistake is you considered journalism? a few more dead an you'd get the liar's achievement award. susan rice removed her name. i didn't know you could do that. i could theoretically remove my name from the strawberry cake ambassadorship. >> dana: every day i could make an announcement i am going to withdraw my name for the hello kitty ambassadorship at times square. i don't know if you see them. they try to recruit me. >> andrea: miss universe. >> dana: i understand they want the news fight and why they go against the republicans, the mean guys. here is the thing. it wasn't just about benghazi she was not looked at to be the next best secretary of state. it's a moderate senator. senator collins saying i'm not for this. several reasons. president obama lost his first
11:19pm
political gamble of a second term. then they are magnifying it, making a big announcement. she is doing exclusive interview tonight with nbc. she was never officially nominated for anything. you can't withdrawal your name from consideration. we could do that all day long. get maybe good press. >> eric: he never in any -- >> bob: he never in any way, shape or form hinted she would be the secretary of state nominee. >> dana: yes, he -- >> bob: no, he defended her. but i never heard him say anything about secretary of state. >> andrea: do you want to use this opportunity maybe to withdrawal consideration of your candidacy for sexiest man alive >> bob: i can't do that. nobody else could take my place.

mccain, lindsey graham and colin, couple -- and ayotte spent hours with her behind closed doors and came out with a face like uh-oh, this is going to be a problem. they were trying to give her the benefit of the doubt and realized they couldn't she has no choice. >> dana: there is an art of floating somebody's fame for something, they didn't do it well. >> andrea: they created this mess from day one. they floated her name. they are the ones that pushed it. now, they think this is good for them. it really do think this is good for them. the president issued a statement that said we can't believe, we're disappointed in republicans. if i were her, i would say you know what? spare me. you have have done enough to hurt me. now i look like a victim. she should have said weeks ago i think we talked about this on america's newsroom, she should say i don't want it. >> dana: happy where i am. >> bob: if you float a name for secretary of state and don't do it by giving her talking points on controversial issue and put it on a talk show. >> dana: that aren't true. >> greg: so you are blaming the video of her on sunday
11:21pm
talk show. that created angry mob in the white house. >> andrea: who made the video? can we put them in jail? >> greg: do you know what it is? once they found out she was worth $40 million. could it have been attack on the super rich? >> eric: 1%. >> dana: but now they have john kerry. he is worth $40 billion. >> eric: point something out about the politifact thing on the monologue. they're wrong on this. romney is right. chrysler is building, moving -- not moving is opening plants in china, building -- >> dana: that is not -- >> bob: that is not what romney said. >> eric: he misspoke and said jobs. they still have our money, bob. they have our money opening the plants. >> bob: romney -- >> eric: he was right. >> bob: he did it in ohio. this is a bigger deal than greg made it out to be. in ohio, in the last push for the most important state. he made a statement that chrysler was taking the jeeps and going to china with them. that's just wrong.
11:22pm
flat-out wrong. >> andrea: by the time the ad came out it was factually correct. >> greg: by the way, if it was a flubb, which -- look, how could it be any worse than accusing mitt romney of murder? >> dana: they actually had to admit they got it wrong. even the people on the left said -- >> bob: can we go back to susan rice for a second. they talk about her being the national security advisor, which does require senator approval. my trend tom donal the current national security advisor, nobody easily pushed around, i think you look at him as potential secretary of state nominee as well. >> eric: what about john kerry? >> dana: holy freddie mac, batman. >> andrea: who is fact checking the fact checkers? how can someone call themselveses a fact checker? so greg, i'm just going to call myself a fact checker right now and say the lie of the year was politifact but it was that romney was wrong to claim spending under obama accelerated at a pace without
11:23pm
precedence in history. they said that was a lie. that is lie of the year. >> bob: the beckel almanac settles all the issues. >> andrea: they debunked poltifact a number of times. for them to come out and give an award is opinion journalism. >> bob: we got to go. >> greg: we have to move on. coming up, did you know the government has the power to find out anything they want about you? maybe they'll get me a need christmas present. i like hummel. stick around. ♪ ♪
